Start Your Engines!!!


It's time to shift into overdrive and gear up for ‘Race 2 Save Veteran Lives’, an indoor Go-Kart race event, an annual fundraiser for the National Alliance To End Veteran Suicide (NA2EVS.org).Go-Kart events bring together Teams; from families, friends, co-workers, businesses, schools, military units and various groups from all over.  We use the acronym T.E.A.M. as Together Everyone Achieves Miracles and we formally invite you to join us in Saving Lives of our Service Members and Veterans as either a Driver, a Team, a Sponsor or any combination. Consider that ‘No one can DO EVERYTHING, but EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING’.  Your participation in this event could be your something!  This competition will be exciting as drivers in teams compete to be the fastest team, fastest female driver, fastest male driver, and they will hold their title until next year.  There will also be team awards for the most money raised for NA2EVS.  The event is 200 laps indoors - done Indy Style (where you'll have to change drivers).  Teams have between 5 - 10 drivers.  This is a single heat race with only 8 teams maximum.  The event is held at the well known Grand Prix Raceway in Lakewood WA near Joint Base Lewis McChord.

Each driver registers by paying their $20 fee (which includes your t-shirt and award ceremony).  Each driver then commits to raise a minimum of $80, which then qualifies them to race.  All those that race will also get something special at the awards ceremony.  This site provides each driver and team a Fundraiser page so that donations are collected online.  You will then give your private Fundraiser URL to those you ask to support your goal.  

If you can't be with us, consider 'Sponsor a Driver' (either in memory of or to honor someone special).  In this way you allow a driver to enter and qualify that could not normally afford to do so as the $100 covers it all for them.   We will use a lottery to choose who is sponsored based on these donation types.

You may create your own teams, or we'll add you to a team as we close registration.  We will then have meetings to get you tools for fundraising, your t-shirt and to rally as teams for this competition.

You may also 'Sponsor a Team' of up to 5 drivers, who are then pre-qualified as having raised $100 each.  You then choose to provide the drivers (from your company or family) or we can fill the driver seats via a lottery.

All funds raised from this event, help support our ‘Operation Veteran Freedom’ workshop and various educational and community events that we put on throughout the year.  Please look over the amazing testimonies for this workshop at www.na2evs.org/ovf.  You can learn more about our events at www.na2evs.org/events. Your financial support will help make this year’s ‘Race 2 Save Veteran Lives’ Go-Kart fundraiser a great success!
